As MR’s two publications — the Performance Journal (semi-annual print edition) and Critical Correspondence (monthly web edition) — move into their respective 3rd and 2nd decades, the editorial teams hoped to enter into a more robust dialogue with their colleagues in the field.

The event brought together agents of the dance publishing world in New York and members of the interested public. Buoyed by wine and modest vittles, we broke into three working groups focused on three themes: Design, Circulation and Content. Each working group had auxiliary prompts and exercises to guide a hands-on, brains-on practicum leading to a larger, group conversation.

In preparation, the hosts asked that attendees bring a clutch of journals, periodicals, catalogs and/or websites that serve as their primary sources for dance content.

It is with pleasure and anticipation that we invite you to an upcoming Studies Project sponsored by Movement Research. As MR’s two publications—the Performance Journal (semi-annual print edition) and Critical Correspondence (monthly web edition)—move into their respective 3rd and 2nd decades, the editorial teams hope to enter into a more robust dialogue with their colleagues in the field.

The two-hour event will bring together agents of the dance publishing world in New York and members of the interested public. Buoyed by wine and modest vittles, we will break into three working groups focused on three themes: Design, Circulation and Content. Each working group will have auxiliary prompts and exercises to guide a hands-on, brains-on practicum leading to a larger, group conversation. The salon will be hosted by Moriah Evans, Editor-in-chief, The Movement Research Performance Journal, and Biba Bell & Will Rawls, co-Editors, Critical Correspondence.

In preparation, we ask only that you bring a clutch of journals, periodicals, catalogs and/or websites that serve as your primary sources for dance content.

Post (Para?) Studio Dance: A Walk through the Labyrinth, by Biba Bell

From the Studies Project: WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY DANCE  and WHERE DOES IT COME FROM and WHERE IS IT GOING?
Initiated by  The Bureau for the Future of Choreography

Post (Para?) Studio Dance: A Walk through the Labyrinth
by Biba Bell

When invited into the conversation proposed by The Bureau…

[What might a flowchart for contemporary dance look like? Where and when does your flowchart for contemporary dance start? Where does it end? What are your ideologies and how do you name them? What are your histories and how do you write them–especially those that have not been formally written?]

… I immediately focused on the question of the contemporary. What makes dance contemporary? Is it a moment, perspective, set of materials… what does it look like? What is it aligned with or against?
